"Dunch" - a portmanteau of dinner and lunch - is a terrible word. I blame Chowfather for it. For everything else about our late lunch Cobaya on June 24, I thank Chef Micah Edelstein of neMesis Urban Bistro and her small but capable crew. You can read my recap here at Food For Thought, or read the Chowfather's recap, and see all my pictures in this Cobaya "Dunch" flickr set.

As I said in my recap, many thanks to Micah and her small, hard-working crew; to Matilda for her contagious smile and good cheer; and to all of the guinea pigs who took part in another of our experiments. For those who had already been to neMesis, it was a good reminder of the unique cooking that's going on there; and for those who hadn't been before, I hope they'll go back.
